    Hope and Miracles: “The Shawshank Redemption” and “The Green Mile” from Gauntlet

    I thought we already had a post about this but I an unable to find it:

    From Gauntlet Press website:
    Set for Publication Summer 2020
    In commemoration of the 25th Anniversary of Frank Darabont’s classic film, “The Shawshank Redemption,” as well as the 20th Anniversary of Darabont’s next film, “The Green Mile,” Gauntlet Press is proud to announce the publication of Hope and Miracles: “The Shawshank Redemption” and “The Green Mile” (Two Screenplays by Frank Darabont). The book is edited by noted Stephen King authority Tyson Blue.
    Available in both signed limited and traycased lettered editions, Hope and Miracles will include:
    — Frank Darabont’s screenplays for both films
    — A new Introduction by Richard Christian Matheson
    — Introductions to each film by Darabont and Stephen King
    — Behind-the-scenes photographs and storyboards
    — Cast and Crew listings for both films
    — A profile of the late Michael Clarke Duncan
    — Essays on both films by Darabont and Tyson Blue
    — Reflective essays and interviews by noted directors Josh Boone, Mick Garris, Gregory Nicotero and James Cole
    Added to this, Frank Darabont has gone through his personal archives, allowing us to include photographs never before released.
    All editions are signed by Frank Darabont and Tyson Blue. The traycased lettered edition is signed by Frank Darabont, Tyson Blue, Richard Christian Matheson, Josh Boone, Mick Garris, Gregory Nicotero, and James Cole.
    We’ll update you on additions as we learn about them. We’re going to consult with our traycase maker to come up with something truly unique (the book will be in an 8 x 10 format).

    I'll pass. Love both movies but I don't care for screenplays as much. And as has been said before the quality of some recent Gauntlet Titles hasn't been that spectacular.

    Ditto. Plus, I already have Darabont's signature in one of his auction catalogs. At that price ($199 for the limited) I'm definitely going to pass on this one.

    This was an easy buy for me. Then the CDCC came and took another large chunk of my book budget. I am hoping for only things I can pass on for a while!

    In my estimation, both of these movies are the best King adaptations hands down. Shawshank is a modern classic and The Green Mile should get a lot more love than I think it does. That being said, the prices for these are just too high, especially that lettered. I'm just wary if the book would match up to the price point, especially the lettered edition.

    While I enjoyed Green Mile, I always thought Shawshank and Stand by Me (The Body) were the best adaptations. I felt the use of a narrator helped to incorporate more of kings actual writing into the screenplay and really helped character development that feels lacking in other adaptations. That said, I have not pulled the trigger on this title. There are just so many great choices and only so much funds. Keeping it on the back burner for now.
